Red Army ensemble in Poland

Red Army choir, known as Alexandrov Ensemble, was a frequent visitor to Poland in recent years. Organizing concerts of representatives of armed forces of the country which imposed communism all over Eastern Europe and conducted genocide of those opposing communism is a bad idea.

On Sept. 13, 2014 I sent an email to the agency EAR representating the choir in Poland, where I said

I would like to know if Alexandrov Ensemble will perform in Poland on the anniversary of the October Revolution, just like it did in recent years.

Does the Ensemble have any songs of the prisoners of the Soviet concentration camps in its repertoire? My parents spent jointly 17 years in those camps and I would welcome a chance to become acquainted with the products of the camps' culture.

I would appreciate if you send me information about Ensemble's concerts in 2014.
Later I found out that the 2014 tour in Poland was cancelled. However the 2015 tour is on.
